I'm not fully sure if its ok to post this here but I was wondering if anyone had any expirence filling for benefits due to bipolar getting to that level of severity. I'm only partialy medicated and could really use the medical assistance to get myself back on track and i'm having a very hard time working like this (and i have poor job history because of it...averaging 4 months, get quit or get fired).
I saw a new Dr last week (free clinic run by the county) and he was very concerned over my behavior and suggested i get on disabilty. Ihave an apointment for him again next week as well as to see the staff councelor there.
so far i have applied for medicade and i'm on a call back list for the SSDI. I've been using a mood chart to keep track of my behavior and i've started writing a journal on how i feel that day, what i've eaten, and anythign that would be useful for the councelor to know to help get me treatment.
Does anyone have any nuggets of wisdom on other things i can do or should be prepared for?
